    I worked at Bard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was allowed to run my own day to day schedule
    Rather flexible hours
    Good PTO
    Good healthcare plan

    Cons

    No direction
    No true brand identity
    Senior management is disjointed
    My day to day activities really made no difference to the business. Most decisions were made behind closed doors or before I even started my work. Most of my time was spent getting info together for someone higher to present. It's a double edged sword- lack of your work nattering means that you could make mistakes in a safety net and learn but also means that your work didn't matter.

    Most everyone is friendly and easy to get along with. Everyone can pull together and help anyone out when they need it.

    Very little communication, consistency or advancement opportunities. Busybodies and drama are considered at epidemic levels throughout the plant. Everyone knows everything about everyone else and is not shy to gossip about anyone.

    Learn to talk to each other! So much time was wasted simply because no one was on the same page.

    The products I sell are amazing and everyone wants them. My managers are very supportive and co-workers are helpful.

    Change the pat structure back to the way it should be. If i sell it... I should be paid for it. More jr reps to help us go deeper into accounts.
